How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

How often should you rotate your tires? Generally, when to rotate tires should be every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. This is a good rule of thumb, but always check your owner’s manual for exact figures on your model. Still curious when to rotate tires? Follow this guide from Team Blevins, your Canton-area trusted service center.

Rotating Tires on FWD and RWD Vehicles

Front-wheel and rear-wheel drive simply refer to which wheels your engine’s power is sent: Front-wheel drive cars spin their front wheels, while rear-wheel drive cars push the rear wheels. The set of tires that get most of the engine power will wear faster, so think about your drivetrain, and consider these tire rotation tips:

  • Tire rotation needs to be performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles on FWD and RWD vehicles. Consult your owner’s manual for exact figures.
  • Performing a FWD tire rotation yourself? Flip sides when moving the rear tires – i.e. the rear-right tire moves to the front left. Vice versa, when moving the front tires to the back, keep them on the same side.
  • Invert the process above when rotating RWD tires. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, and keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Keep in mind how you drive, since going off-road will affect how often you need to rotate your tires. Talk with the service experts at Team Blevins to get a better idea of a maintenance schedule that fits your driving habits.

AWD Tire Rotation Tips

Curious how many miles to rotate tires on an AWD model? These vehicles work slightly differently since each tire wears differently, and at different speeds, though most experts recommend a standard interval of 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Regardless, always consult your owner’s manual for your specific vehicle’s exact numbers. Can’t remember the last time you performed a tire rotation? Don’t hesitate to schedule service at Team Blevins. We’ll perform an inspection to see if you’re due. Tires usually require a rotation once the tread variance exceeds 2/32 of an inch.

Why Rotate Tires?

Common knowledge implies tire rotation will extend the life of your tires. Beyond that, regular tire rotation gives your vehicle these additional benefits:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain
